Future In Spain

There’s something I haven’t told you

I know I said that we wouldn’t buy a property in Spain without selling the boat first, but it was all about our intentions, not our means to do so…

While we were renting a property there, through our expert English estate agent, solicitor and (English speaking) bank. We trawled through various houses for a few weeks and eventually found “THE ONE.”

Dave flew back to the UK to spend the kids inheritance shuffle investments about, and we bought a fully furnished MAGNIFICENT three story house, in a gorgeous area of south Costa Blanca!

It’s about 3 miles back from the Med coast. The landscape rises quite steeply beyond the sea, so we still have the awesome view of it. The 180 view from the other side of it rises up further into the beautiful hills. Finalisation of the sale went through towards the end of February, we were given the keys to the kingdom and lived there for a month.

All of this was made possible by our fantastic financial contacts who helped us confirm and realise what we’ve already researched for the past year. Buying a property in Spain can be relatively easy if you know the English experts, and can distinguish a bad build between a good build that ticks all your boxes – and more. Within our price range we were only shown round one we would consider a “bad build.” Very nice inside, but it was obvious some tiles on the roof weren’t lined up properly and tiles outside were slightly uneven. NO WAY… 

I can only tell you about this now, because friends and family have been informed. I could give you a link to the 148 photos we took of it! But for security reasons I won’t show the property from the outside. Wish I could – you’d be gobsmacked. However I’ll give you a little taster of what it’s like inside, and it’s much bigger than it looks…
